Location

Situation

Many of the young people in Tiverton are leading severely disaffected lives. Sadly these young people are trying to cope with symptoms such as: anxiety, stress, self-harm and depression, caused by loss & separation, abuse; (sexual, physical and/or neglect). Many are in long-term foster care, or care for parents who are chronically ill, disabled, or who misuse alcohol or other substances.

Solution

We wish to continue to build our counselling service in Tiverton, and provide emotional support for more of the children and young people who are trying to survive extremely difficult and chaotic lives. A particular strength of the service is that it has become well-known and the young people have come to rely on it, often referring friends and siblings.
